Why Detroit Street Filling Station?
The Staebler Family Oil Company opened a filling station at 300 Detroit Street in 1925. The original pillars and clay tile roof can still be seen inside and outside of the restaurant. By 1967 it was converted to the Ann Arbor Fish Market and the front drive-through area was enclosed with white stucco, leaving the original brick columns exposed on the corners. After Kerrytown opened the building became Argiero's Italian Restaurant in 1977. A small addition was made along Detroit Street and the front, facing the point of the intersection, extended as outdoor dining space. Argiero's closed after 40 years of service. The Lunch Room expanded into this historical landmark and opened Detroit Street Filling Station August 2017.
Where does the lightning bolt come from?
We have been endlessly inspired by the history of the building. It didn't stop when it came the time to design our own logo. Although being a little wonky, we could not get out of our head the Staebler Oil Co. logo from an ad we came across during buildout. When looking for our place for the first time, just look for the giant yellow lightning bolt on the roof. Our neon sign was made by Chalou DeSigns who is famous for many signs around Ann Arbor like the Fleetwood Diner and State Theater marquee.
